It Won’t Go Down

8th December 2020

Scripture Reading: 2 Kings 6: 8-23


“13. And he said, Go and spy where he is, that I may send and fetch him. And it was told him, saying, Behold, he is in Dothan. 14. Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about.” (2 Kings 6: 13-14)

In our Focal Scripture, the King of Syria sent his men to go and lay a siege on Elisha. Elisha was the prophet who gave prophetic insight again and again to the king of Israel; Elisha was the man by whose warnings the King of Israel escaped the ambush of the Syrians again and again. Elisha was an important person in the success and safety of the King of Israel, and the enemies of Israel sent a conspiracy against Elisha. It was an attack against what was important to the King of Israel.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every conspiracy against the things that are important to you, I command the conspiracies to scatter now. I command every conspiracy against your success to scatter now. Every conspiracy to disconnect you from the helpers God has sent to you, I command the conspiracy to scatter now. Every attack on your means of livelihood, I command it to scatter now.

Hear me as I hear the Lord; what is important to you will not go down. Your health will not go down; your finances will not go down; your career will not go down; your business will not go down; your ministry will not go down; your academics will not go down; your family will not go down; your marriage will not go down; your efforts will not go down the drains; your important, profitable relationships will not go down the drains.

The same way Elisha was surrounded by chariots of fire and was thus impregnable to the plot of the enemies, your destiny will remain beyond the reach of the enemy. You belong to that generation whose stars cannot be pulled down. You belong to the company of those whose destinies are surrounded by chariots of fire. You belong to the generation of those whose lives are off the limits for the powers of darkness.

Every plot of the enemy against you is annulled. Every conspiracy of hell to make you go down is scattered by fire.


What is important to me will not go down, in Jesus’ name!
